One of our local art supply stores is closing. This is definitely too bad, but they're selling off stock and prices are low, which is good! I've been in twice and will visit again before they close. One thing I bought was a handful of brush tip pens (Pitt, to be specific). They were half price, in limited colors, but this was a good opportunity to try 'em out, cheap! I knew almost nothing about using these.

I had a variety of green pens so I did another one, again on a pre-strung Zendala tile. I also used an olive green Sakura Glaze pen and a white pen.

I found that I did less tangle drawing and more color filling. I guess that figures. Once there is brush tip ink on the paper, the next pen work tends to bleed a bit, but it's manageable. With a brush tip, the line can vary from hair's breadth thin to quite thick. I need more practice to use this to good advantage. Sometimes there is a lovely transparent quality. For that, I wish I had more pale colors. I'll do more, and maybe get the hang of it better.
